Hilarious Japanese spot for GI Joe: Retaliation, starring Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis, has the best voice over ever!

Yes, I said hilarious.  The movie itself looks pretty damn fun and I'm still hopeful that a year's worth of reshoots, 3D post-conversion, and "not" more Channing Tatum will equal a Joe flick worth watching.  Hopeful is the key word there.  Anyway, this new Japanese spot has got a nice slice of quick cut action sequences and some terrifically over-the-top voice over work.  It sounds as if the movie is being announced as a boxing match, rather than a film, making it all the more awesome.  The last part, where the title is announced in English as "G.I. Joe: Back To Revenge" is just comedy gold.

Enjoy:

At this stage in the game, I'm all in.  Even with all the delay controversy and the fact that the director has only made concert films and dance movies, the bottom line is that I'm a child of the '80's and G.I. Joe is a staple of my childhood.  Even if it's the worst pile of crap, it can't be worse than the last one...can it?

Directed by John Chu and starring Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki, Channing Tatum, Ray Stevenson, Joseph Mazzello, D.J. Catrona, Arnold Vosloo, Ray Park, Walton Goggins, RZA, and Byung-hun Lee, G.I. JOE: RETALIATION gets back to revenge on March 29, 2013.  And, oh yes, in 3D.  Don't you worry.

That was pretty amusing, but not quite as over the top as I thought it would be. This is fairly typical for Japanese entertainment. You should see some of the commercials they produce.

Oh my god, yes. That announcer sounded like he was on the edge of his seat as if he believed everything he was seeing was real life.

Just Bring It!

I've been a huge fan of The Rock ever since I was 12 and he was kicking ass in WWE, so yes, I'll definitely be heading out to see this. If all else fails, you can count on some badassery courtesy of The Rock, and that's a damn good insurance policy.

PS: Yes, he still kicks ass in WWE. In fact he'll be wrestling for the WWE Championship in 2 weeks and I'll be at the edge of my seat for that one too.

That was not the English title

The title GI Joe: Back 2 Revenge was written phonetically in Japanese. There is no way a Japanese person could pronounce "Retaliation" so the title in Japanese is GI Joe: Back 2 Revenge which I think is a pretty cool title.

I think the movie looks good. Hopefully the delay will be worth the wait.
